I say go for it....It's a nice looking jeep....I'm digging the front bumper. Jeep prices here in my area, (El Paso, Texas/Las Cruces, New Mexico) the prices are ridiculously high. If that jeep was here at a dealership, it wouldn't last a week. My buddy purchased a 2005 Wrangler X for the same price, and it's bone stock! I know upgrades shouldn't cost more, but damn it sure is convenient at times. Just make sure you follow the advice of others on here....gears, fluids, etc...I purchased my 2004 Rubicon exactly a year ago for 16K even....bone stock as well....Anyway, good luck!
